Update! Heidi was able to head home on the 17th and will continue her therapy from home!

A dear friend of ours, Heidi Spitz that lives in Holyoke, CO was in a major car accident on July 8, 2011. Because of her injuries and the location of her home, she was airlifted to Loveland, CO.
Heidi suffered a skull fracture above her right ear, fracture of her right eye socket and hairline fractures in her left hip and right wrist.
Heidi underwent surgery for the skull fracture on the 9th and because of the trauma and the surgery, Heidi also suffered a few minor strokes.
Heidi came through the surgery well though and on Monday she was able to have her breathing tubes removed which helped immensely with her healing. Since that time, she has been moved to a regular room and is attempting to move around more and is starting to eat small amounts.
Heidi should be able to have her staples removed within the next two weeks and be transferred to a regular room. Although the initial healing has begun, Heidi has a long road ahead of her with many months of healing and physical therapy.
Anyone that knows Heidi, knows that she is one of the strongest people around and will conquer anything that arises.
We are setting up this benefit to help give her the time to heal and help her family with the huge amount of medical and living expenses that they will encounter during the months ahead.
